Identify the Mystery Spot! (Patrick Mears, Germany, 06/16/18 4:47 am)

Connie and I are away and thought that we would share these photos of a country house (now museum) that we visited yesterday.

Sorry for the somewhat disturbing shadows on the house. Probably not a difficult place to identify, given the extensive expertise of many WAISers on the history, literature and culture of this country.

From your posts, it sounds as if your trip to Colombia has been a success.

JE comments:  Colombia has been spectacular.  Yesterday we toured the Laguna de Guatavita, origin of the El Dorado legend, and today we leave Bogotá for a long (10 hours), but WiFi-equipped bus ride to Pereira in the Coffee Region.

Ah, the Huerta de San Vicente...may I make a confession, Pat?  I had to look it up.  I hope no one makes me turn in my Hispanist card.  (And forgive me, John Heelan.)

  • Lorca's Huerta de San Vicente (John Heelan, UK 06/17/18 4:55 AM)

    Ah! La Huerta de San Vicente! (See Patrick Mears, 16 June.)

    I spent a lot of time there when researching Federico García Lorca in Granada, soaking up the atmosphere of the poet's family life both there and in his birthplace.  Also, a museum in Fuentevaqueros and tracing the stops on his route from La Huerta (now surrounded by Parque Garcia Lorca) to his temporary hiding place with the Rosales family, then to the then mayoral building (now part of the university but fascinating to experience how he might have felt while being held there for 24 hours or so), and then onto the barranco at Viznar and La Colonia from which he was taken to be executed.

    Ian Gibson's book Guía de la Granada de Federico García Lorca (1989; English version is Lorca's Granada--a Practical Guide) is an indispensable work for anybody interested in Lorca sources. As are many other books on Federico's assassination, such as that by the Granadino journalist Eduardo Molino Fajardo, Los últimos días de Garcia Lorca, written soon after Federico was killed, complete with his Fajardo's interview notes. Molina Fajardo was employed by Granada's right-wing daily Ideal, so unlikely to have a left-wing bias to support FGL

    My hobbyhorse is starting to bolt so I had better shut up. (Smile)

    JE comments:  Bolt away, Hobbyhorse of Heelan!  I'll always be grateful to Federico (among other reasons) for bringing you into the WAIS fold.

    (For those who don't know the story, John Heelan's research on Lorca is what inspired him to contact Prof. Hilton.  The rest is WAIS legend.)
